Here's our simple process for sending a money transfer to Turkey as a cash pickup or bank transfer - the two options are similar:
If you send to a Turkish bank account, your recipient will need to wait for the funds to arrive. For a cash pick up, your Turkish recipient will need to show some form of photo ID in order to pick up the funds. It's also important that you give them the transaction reference number to streamline the process.
For larger transfer amounts, you may need to phone the agent location to ensure it has enough cash available.
How to decide which option is best for you to send money to Turkey.
To send money from the United Kingdom to Turkey, you'll need the following:
Most providers require a driver's licence, passport or other British government-issued ID. You can send transfers without the above but may need to give alternate ID instead.
Your options depend on the provider's services. Popular methods include cash, debit or credit card payments, bank account transfers and personal cheques.
You'll need their name (matching their ID) plus contact details. If sending to a Turkish bank account, you'll need the a/c number, SWIFT|IBAN and branch details.
To collect money in person in Turkey, the recipient will need:
The reference number - sometimes called a PIN, MTCN or tracking number.
A official ID, such as a Turkish passport or driving licence.
To know how much has been sent, usually to within 10% of the total.
The sender's name and address and the country from where the money was sent.
The cost of sending money to Turkey from the United Kingdom depends on the exchange rate between GBP to TRY, the fees, how you want your recipient to receive your transfer and the turnaround time:
